This is the second year our apricot tree has given us fruits. Last year it tested the waters with 3-4 fruits but this year it has given us lots of delicious, juicy apricots. I don’t think I’ve ever tasted better apricots: lots of aroma, soft, juicy and beautiful. We use no pesticides or fertilizers in our garden; nothing, not even manure. But what we do is that we let fallen leaves and vegetables sit on the ground over the winter and by spring, they’ve almost all dissolved into it, enriching it naturally. We have few pests and as you can see from the photos, our apricots were not spoiled by them. I think I tossed at most 5-6 fruits (out of over 100) due to critters. Enjoy the photos!

“The fun of it all!”
Your apricots look so yummy! I’ve never seen ones with the red spots before… are they a special heirloom variety?
Don’t know, my wife bought the tree. I don’t think she was looking for a particular variety of apricots, she just wanted a nice healthy tree we could enjoy for years and years.
